Something cool I had to share...

This is a really small thing, but I can't resist sharing...

Yesterday my friends and I went to do a little shopping, and we took my car. As some of you may remember, I mixed a tape a few weeks ago of good "cruising" songs. So the live version of "A Sort of Homecoming" from WAIA comes on and one of my friends starts singing along! I just thought that was so cool, because it's not really one of the most "well-known" songs among "non-fans" or whatever...Anyway...

Cool! Those are some great songs, and I think a lot of people really don't know just how great U2 are and how deep their catalog is!

I take every opportunity to use "U2" in everyday conversation...Whenever I'm at a store and the cashier says, "Have a nice day!" I just have to say "U2!"

Cool! Great song.

Here, let me tell you a small U2-ey thing that I experienced recently. Okay, so I was at this big gaming arcade thing in Houston (forgot the name of the place, but it was funstuff), and all of a sudden "Kite" is played throughout the speakers above. Throughout the gaming facility, the wonders of "Kite" could be heard. I was so happy and decided to take a break from my game-playing and reflect on how much of an awesome song that is.

Also, "Hello Time Bomb" (Matthew Good Band) was played later on. I was pleasantly surprised by that, too.

Cool! Oh...That reminds me of something else...Once when I went into Disc Jockey (now f.y.e.) they were playing Zooropa, the whole CD! When I went in there I think it was on "Babyface" or something like that, and I was like, "what?" and sure enough, as I stuck around, they played the rest of the CD. There must have been a fan working there that day or something.

This may be a rather sweeping statement, but I think moments like you just described wertsie, are my favourite. Heading out with the girls, a sing song, just love it.They sound lik egood friends. Thanks for the reminder.

Stuck in A Moment was on the car radio as we drove off this morning
I hear U2 all around the place.
the woman on the radio this morning was asking people to ring the station and tell her if they had been getting any rain. She said "I would like to hear from you too "
I would like to hear from U2 too

Totally! I always hate it when I'm in the car and the radio is kind of low and the dj says "you, too" and I think they said "U2" and think that a U2 song is coming next or something.
